MegaMillions jackpot rolls to 654m USD – and could reach a record $BILLION by the end of the week
One lucky Brit could be in line to claim a near 500million (GBP) prize* this week after Lottoland announced its second ever largest Mega Millions jackpot.
This week’s top prize has reached a whopping 654m in USD to become the 4th largest jackpot in history – and is just two rollovers away from reaching an eye watering $1billion.
UK Lottoland players keen to claim one of the world’s biggest prize pots ever – equal to £497,206,770 in sterling* – can do so via the online betting company.
Nigel Birrell, CEO at Lottoland, said: “As ‘landmark’ moments go this week has already brought us a few, and has the potential to deliver a great deal more.
“We are pretty well versed in dealing with ‘lifechanging’ moments here at Lottoland, but to be talking about hundreds of millions – and potentially in billions – it doesn’t get much more exciting than that.”
“We haven’t seen hysteria like this surrounding a jackpot since the Powerball reached $1billion in 2016,” Nigel added.
